Yoga & Meditation Retreat

Restore mind. body. spirit

Sri Lanka Escapes offers Yoga & Meditation Retreats for 7, 10, 14 days experiencing traditional ayurvedic treatments that provide true rejuvenation and revitalisation for the soul. This retreat is great for short get aways to focus on your mindfulness practices of yoga and meditation. This will introduce you to our approach to wellness through loving kindness, healthy eating and mindfulness practices surrounded by nature. Ancient practices of yoga and meditation are a key component to embracing a more mindful lifestyle. Yoga is about creating balance in the body through developing both strength and flexibility. This retreat will provide two yoga classes daily – one in the morning and another in the evening. The morning class will be a little energetic and the evening class will be slower. We will also have daily mid morning guided meditation classes to help you develop your mindfulness practice. Experience the natural and homely environment and care at our award winning retreat centre focusing on your mindfulness practices of yoga and meditation. 

Relax and unwind in our stunning resort sanctuary for 7, 10, 14 days, on your relaxation, healing and wellness journey. Your days will be spent practising guided yoga, meditation, swimming, hiking, waterfalls, reading, relaxing around the pool, participating in workshops, cooking demonstrations, vegetable picking, educational health and wellness talks and learning about the Yoga an Ayurveda philosophy and enjoying a massage in the spa centre and of course relaxing around the swimming pool.

 

The retreat will feature a delicious plant based menu, with our in-house chef for the duration of the Retreat. Ayurveda places a high importance on food, noting that poor digestion (including assimilation of nutrition and elimination of waste products) is one of the two main causes of all diseases (the other cause being the state of the mind).  Therefore, the food we serve is overseen by our team of doctors. They have developed the menus and monitor the kitchen to ensure the meals are nutritionally balanced and in keeping with the Ayurvedic principles.  Our meals are vegetarian and gluten and sugar free. Most dishes are vegan and if you have allergies and food intolerances, we can both help you with them and amend our food accordingly. 

 

Ayurvedic food preparation is a complete science of its own, requiring careful consideration of the following factors: Guna (properties or qualities of the food), Rasa (the six tastes), Vipaka (the product of digestion), Virya (the potential of generating heat or cold), Prabhava (unique qualities) and Karma (resulting action in body and mind).  Guests are invited to learn about diet and also on how to cook your favorite meals through cookery demonstrations conducted by our doctors and the kitchen team. Our ‘Farm to Plate Policy’ ensures that the majority of the food that is served to you comes directly from the Plantation own rice paddy field, organic vegetables, fruit, spice and herbs garden. Free from the artificial preservatives, colourings and pesticides, all meals on site are home made from healthy, fresh ingredients. Anything that is not picked straight from our own organic gardens is sourced locally and ethically so that quality of the food is not compromised. The complete experience encourages a more “hands on” approach to wellness and promotes changes to unhealthy lifestyle choices and habits for good.
